I’m a Trusted Advisor with a mission:

I help organizations to innovate faster by providing Cloud Native environments for their applications

cloudowski-speaker I provide consulting services and use technology with my expertise to help you in the following ways:

  • I decrease time to market for your services with standardized CI/CD systems that are ready to deploy dozens of microservices maintained by multiple teams (internal and external)
  • I save time of your development teams by enabling more experiments done on environments created on demand
  • I open up opportunities for your new products with agile environments I help to create that are ready for more software developed by more people at a faster pace
  • I help you grow when demand for your products increases by building scalable solutions that can span across multiple datacenters and cloud providers
  • I increase availability of your systems with properly crafted environments that can survive even the most unexpected outages by leveraging containers and OpenShift/Kubernetes features
  • I increase security of your environments by using Cloud Native solutions (e.g. Istio) and helping you to keep it always up-to-date with an easy update process for all components (infrastructure, platform and applications)
  • I protect you from cloud vendor lock-in with properly designed delivery process that is universal across all major cloud providers and on-premise installations of OpenShift/Kubernetes

How I work

I prefer projects that are

  • Innovative
  • Involves cooperation with people focused on solving real problems and defined vision
  • Short-term (3-6 months) or mid-term (6-24 months)

Projects I’m not interested in

  • Anything that draws people into financial debts or is nonethical in some way (e.g. gambling)
  • Support or maintenance of existing product, project
  • Projects requiring mostly meetings than actually delivering value
  • Projects requiring 100% on-site presence or permanent relocation (I live in Poland)
  • Long-term (>24 months)

Technology I use

I don’t believe in tools - I only choose good technology to build great solutions for my clients. This includes:

  • OpenShift and Kubernetes
  • Linux systems (Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu) - I’m a Linux guy and don’t know much about Windows
  • AWS (my preferred cloud platform), Azure and Google Cloud Platform
  • Git, Jenkins, Docker, Terraform and Ansible
  • Python, Shell (bash), Golang

Why me

Trust me - I’m a multi-certified expert

My badges - photo taken during AWS re:Invent shortly after I passed my Professional exam

For many years I’ve been developing my skill and often I sat an exam to test my knowledge. Now I own many certifications, of which I’m most proud of the following:

  • AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional and Associate
  • AWS Certified Advanced Networking - Specialty
  • Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA)
  • Certified Jenkins Engineer
  • and many more (check my LinkedIn profile)

Independent and Trusted Advisor who brings more value

I chose to work as an Independent Consultant to provide more benefits than large consulting companies. In particular:

  • I can start a new project within weeks - not months
  • I work directly with my clients - without sales or any other middleman person which can cause delays
  • I respond rapidly to messages from my clients - I feel responsible for maintaining good relationship
  • I provide a hands-on expertise from a field - not something that is simply overpromised by big companies and almost never delivered
  • I have few clients that I focus my attention and energy fully
  • I’m unbiased and always place my client’s best interest over vendor policies and sales strategy
